((audience)) is a nomadic sound art festival organized by Lauren Rosati and Alexis Bhagat. In 2009 and through 2010, ((audience)) will present surround sound compositions by nine sound artists in pitch-black movie theaters around the world. This convocation begins with a brief explanation of the impetus behind ((audience)) and a pre-emptive lecture addressing the question “Why movie theaters?” with a counter-question: “Why art galleries?”
The history of sound art in the gallery space and the history of concert hall architecture will be briefly discussed, followed by a presentation of works selected for ((audience09)).
Participants are invited to bring along samples of film soundtracks or of cinematic sound art compositions, to share for listening.
